Only Human, Gordon Ferris

Even bankers have hearts. Just ask Parvati, a young Indian woman badly in need of a hero. Parvati's harrowing adventures illustrate the conflicts at the heart of the biggest democracy in the World. India has limitless potential but is held back by the caste system, misogyny, child slavery and corruption. Married at 13, Parvati is beaten and abandoned by a husband who sells their own son into bondage to pay his debts. Throughout her torments, her spirit is never broken. Parvati still dreams. But how can any dreams come true against such odds?

ONLY HUMAN is the sequel to the highly regarded MONEY TREE.

Both are contemporary thrillers - set mainly in India, but with global resonance.
